Yes, based on the meetings that occurred on 5/23 & 5/30 what the intention is for a "bulls-eye" approach. If you are in the B-52 area you will be in queue. If you are outside of the B-52 area but are inside the OIA perimeter you will be removed from queue. If you are outside of the OIA perimeter but inside the geo-fence you will be in queue.

This is an effort to prevent people from flooding the airport and having a thousand drivers circling.

FYI the B-52 parking lot holds 80 spots and port-a-potties will be provided.

I should also note that the above is just a proposal that was presented. I have not idea what GOAA will actually implement. That vote occurs(ed) today or yesterday. (6/21 or 6/20)

Some dumbass would actually pick up someone at the airport and take them all the way to safety harbor for 90 dollars? Damn Uber drivers are dumb.

OK, so B 52 parking lot. $5.80 per pick up cost, and pick up on the 2nd level. OIA reported this today.

My last run to port Canaveral was after 3 uber drivers turned them down. The customer ended up paying me quadruple uberX rates and was pissed that no one would do it in uber.

So instead of paying $10 less for a shuttle they ended up paying $70 more than a shuttle cause no one wanted the one way haul out there at 6:00 AM on uberX

After a while i see the drivers not wanting long or short trips with the massive number of miles you get stuck with. Trips in orlando get too far very rapidly.

Normally a 45 minute drive wouldn't be too much of an issue. Heck i would have done it when rates where $1.00 a mile. Now... yeah.. not going to happen with X, Payment up front or GTFO my taxi.

What you want with Uber is pick up/drop off as quick as possible when disney busy it literally becomes optimal to not got i drive but to stay around disney and do the park to resort shuffle

The only reason I took the family to st pete was he gave me 50 bucks up front and no tolls
That's the way to do it.

Quadruple the x rate is what they should be paying any way. Glad no one wanted to do it in X. Hopefully more will turn down customers at those ridiculous gtf out of here rates on X.
